    Okay first job out of college. Semi-laid-back atmosphere, low pay, almost NO raises.

    Pros

    Very laid back atmosphere, fun team-building activities and office parties, they are laid back about "clocking in", in that they don't make you, you just get paid for 40 hrs every week that you're there for the full day every day. Decent sick/vacation pay. Some fun young employees and cool older ones too.

    Cons

    Some of the managers are kind of jerks (while some are great, it's a real crap shoot). Low pay and Almost NO raises. Don't expect any positive feedback for a job well done. Not much transparency from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please communicate better with your employees. If you are satisfied with their work performance, I mean satisfied enough to keep them on and give them more and more responsibilities, please LET THEM KNOW. Make sure and give them feedback on the GOOD things they're doing, as well as the bad. Open communication, and letting them know they're all appreciated will really make it a much nicer place to work, for everyone!

    Pros

    TradeOne starts you out with 18 days of PTO. This is sick and vacation all rolled into one. They also offer 8-10 Holidays, and the ones that fall on weekends, they give days of observance. It is very hard to get fired. You can do just about anything under the moon, and still have your job. You have to have something like 4 write ups in 6 months and then you are put on probation. Once you're on probation, you start a 6 month period and all previous issues are then cleared. Depending on whom your Assistant Account Manager is or Account Manager for some clients, your job can be veryyyyyyyyyyy relaxed, for the same pay as someone else who works very hard getting things done efficiently and effectively. They do have career advancement in place, unfortunately they start you out so low (10.75 w/o college and 12.25 with) that even with 3 promotions you're barely at 30,000. I will say for someone who didn't go to college, this is a pretty nice gig. After 3 promotions you have to wait for "new clients" to get promoted and ya never know if or when that will happen. The company does have pretty awesome parties 3 or so times a year (with alcohol) where you can essentially get drunk on the job. Also, everyone is pretty young which makes for a good work environment (unless it unravels into drama, which TradeOne is notorious for).

    Cons

    The company tries to have training and development called the "TradeOne University" in place - which makes you feel like punching yourself in the face (if you have half a brain). No 401k with Matching (they do offer 401k though) and the benefits are pretty horrible. Out of each paycheck they take 35 for healthcare and then 15 for dental (this is the old amount, it just went up) and of course, you can choose to opt out. Basically the worst part of working for TradeOne, is that you are taken advantage of. You are talked down to, like you're stupid, yet you're expected to back up the engineers and analysts that get paid 3 to 5 times more than you do. If you're a hard worker, management does notice, but really they can do little for you (that is up to the executives who believe that once you finally get fed up and quit *because you have been looking the entire time you have been employed and have a WAYYYY better job lined up* that they can just hire someone else), that person will then last 6 months - and the cyle WILL continue.

    Basically - if you want a "career" that is rewarding - this will not be for you. If you want a paycheck that can help you get by this job will do the trick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't pay your employees comparable to what sign flippers on the side of the highway make. Give your lower-level employees the same respect you give your "engineers" and "analysts" - because not only do we back them and everything THEY do up (like when their applications fail and we have to check EVERYDAY to see if everything is working correctly and then resolve all the errors it caused), but we are the face or better yet, the voice of your company. We are not expendable, and if you invested in us you wouldn't have a GINORMOUS turnover rate (almost 45% new employees every 6 months). Also, try cross training your employees on different accounts and utilize their abilities. Instead of hiring new employees for different accounts, use the ones that have dead time, pay them more, and ultimately save money. Everyone Wins! Business OPS 101.
